Tuesday, September 6, Corvallis, Ore. – University of Oregon graduate Derek Buchheit, the Corvallis Knights…
Saturday, July 30, Walla Walla, Wash. – The Corvallis Knights stayed red-hot by thumping the Walla Walla Sweets 11-1 at Borleske Stadium to take the series and extend their West Coast League win streak to 13 games.
Not phased at all by temps nearing 110 degrees, Corvallis starting pitcher Cam Day of Utah (pictured) was brilliant, tossing 5 scoreless innings while allowing only one hit and striking out 5 to earn the win. Will Clark of Pacific closed the game out with a scoreless ninth and reliever Neil Feist, who replaced Day, twirled two scoreless frames.
The Knights banged out 12 hits with four Corvallis hitters collecting two knocks apiece: Redlands outfielder Jonah Advincula, Arizona commit Kiko Romero, left fielder Briley Knight of Portland and designated hitter Logan Johnstone of Gonzaga.
Johnstone, Advincula and Romero all hit triples. Logan Johnstone led the club in RBIs with 2.
With the win, Corvallis improved to 35-12 overall and 17-4 in the South second half.
The series finale is set for tomorrow at Walla Walla at 7:35 pm.
The Knights return to Corvallis on Monday to play a non-league affair with the NW Star Nighthawks. First pitch at Goss Stadium is set for 6:35 pm.
